Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research: Department of Systems Immunology
The Systems Immunology Department is devoted to develop mathematical models for specific biological systems. These are validated with pre-existing experimental results and then used to analyze the system under consideration. Our mission is to establish communication between theory and experiment, and to prove that research in biology can benefit from theoretical predictions. Within the GERONTOSHIELD project the group will use their expertise in mathematics and computer science to unveil the important pathways that affect the immune system in the elderly.
